Hi Dire,

I'm one of two non-programmer employees in the collections group at the archive. Collections takes care of Movies, Audio, Software, and Education.

That means that between the two of us, we have to deal with the 24,000+ new items that users upload every month, the hundreds of error reports filed every week, hundreds of emails sent into our general email inbox, large collection holders who want to donate their movies/audio/etc to the archive, plus various other projects. I'm also working on a large cataloging project called the Open Library. I have more stuff to do every single day here than I even remotely have time for.

So when I say I don't have time to spend half my day monitoring this GD forum, I'm not copping out. It's just the truth.

My suggestion is that you monitor yourselves by ignoring posts that you don't like.

Alexis

Thanks Alexis--I can completely appreicate your situation. I was only pushing the point since I had been told that "multiple posting" (ie, someone logging on with different "names" from one "system") was a no-no, but I can understand if there just isn't the time or interest to play big brother.

We are all big enough to take care of ourselves, and as Dancin says, should just say "thanks" to you and be on our way.

Meant no offense.

Thanks alexis - the world indeed is bigger than this inane chat forum. I have looked for gold but rather found just smoke and mirrors....

I remember this one time, I was at some city fest in Michigan havin a goooood time and for some reason I would walk up to random people and say in a conspiratory tone "it's all done with mirrors."

day went on and like it almost always does it turned into night, city fest was still going gooood and some older lady (I was only maybe 16 at the time) came up to me and said in a conspiratory tone, "it's all done with mirrors."

Man that sure did trip me out.

hey alexis - like i said i meant no offense, im very sorry if you took it that way. i know that this is not your area.

diana was different - this was "her" area before she decided to leave.

you are absolutely right - we need to "police" our own forum and shouldnt be gradeschool looking for the teachers to take care of things for us. sorry that some or all of us have come across that way. you know that I feel that you, tyler, ed, and the rest do a great job here. we just get a bit out of control once in a while. i am just as guilty as the rest (even though i look as it as fun at times)

thanks for what you do Alexis - like i said - i was not calling you out - sorry if it seemed like i was. I love this site - you know that - both of us have been here a long time.

Peace

dire

Hey Dire--so was I wrong or did they not used to have a problem with multiple posters?

I have been harping on not letting it all bother you as an individual poster, and I do believe you can still come here and be productive in spite of the BS, but I also have no problem with a 'rulebook.'

no man - you were right on because i was called out on the several years back (innocently due to email issues)

apparently it is now a free for all, so i take Alex's post as a total bullshit response.

She has added nothing - Diana was the only mod on here that added anything positive anyway other than Tyler - but he has been absent regarding this.

You are right - she ignored you because she didnt know what to say

The fact that Diana doesn't have the time/energy to be around anymore says enough in itself in my opinion.

Makes Alexis point pretty valid.
